Live from Kathmandu: Finals from Sagar
Live from Kathmandu: Finals!

Live from Kathmandu: Full house

My Kathmandu kitchin is filling up with delightful Danger Dogs.

As you can see, Obi, the Jedi Poodle, is well represented in her portraits by Sagar, Suf and Megh Raj.   Tina, the French Bulldog, by Sufraj and Gary, the French Bulldog, by Megh Raj is peeking out from the corner in the top row.

Second row includes Nacho by Megh Raj, Buster Fearless by Nara, Jenny the Jindo by Nara and Dilip.

The bottom shows Buddy the Golden Retriever by Nara, Dr. Watson the Scottie by Sagar, Oscar the Pug by Megh Raj, Buddy by Megh Raj and Bentley the Golden Retreiver by Nara.

This photo was taken at night in light provided by an inverter, but you get an idea of the hard choice ahead of this lovely brown poodle named Obi.   She is indeed a Jedi Poodle - or is it Poodce?

The above is by Sagar, Megh Raj and Sufraj (clockwise from top left).

This portrait of Justin with his kitten Cosmo is progressing well.   Still a work in progress, but it is beautiful.

Cosmo is not the only cat on this trip....

Smudge the Cat as a work in progress by Sagar.   This lovely cat will be done soon!  Cannot wait.

Smudge again as a final by Dilip Niroj.   Dilip captured this cute cat's direct stare!  

Bentley the Golden Retriever by Sagar as a final.   Handsome portrait of a handsome dog.

I'm making this post short, as we are about to lose electricity here in Kathmandu.   Kathmandu is up to 56 hours a week with scheduled power cuts aka 'load-shedding', and many more unscheduled ones as well.

This is what you can expect when you honor your dog (or cat or bunny) with a Nepal Art Dog portrait. The time to order is now over for this trip, but March 2013 is just around the corner, and I will be returning for new orders.   

No obligation to buy, but I bet you will not be able to resist!

Orders are now closed for this trip.  


If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken , bunny, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, please send me a photo at I am here in November, 2012, to order more Danger Dogs and Cats and this trip is now closed, but I will be back in Nepal in March, 2013, and will add your pet to the project.

This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world. I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living. Everybody is happy. Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal! Now is the time to order: Be ahead of the Pack!

Orders now accepted for the Spring 2013 trip.


To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 paintings and three artists will get work. Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint. These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.

While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.

Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front. If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case.

Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!

Send your photo to or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.
